Road Scholar
Program #1413RJ
11 Days | 10 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Enjoy two perspectives of paradise. Explore the Garden Isle of Kauai, the oldest island in the Hawaiian chain, and the Big Island of Hawaii, the youngest. Learn about the development of each island’s cultural traditions, "talk story” with residents of diverse backgrounds and venture to all parts of both islands as you examine their unique histories.


Highlights

• On the island of Hawaii study marine life, endangered birds, fern forests, lava tubes and steaming calderas at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
• Explore rainforests, Hawaii's tallest waterfall and the Hamakua Coast with field interpreters from local educational institutions.
• Visit the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, the National Tropical Botanical Garden and Waimea Canyon, “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.”

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile over maintained trails and uneven ground.
